Yes, partitioning the two components makes a lot of sense to me. The 
bounded description algorithm is the sort of thing that could slot into 
a bunch of pre-existing RDF toolkits quite easily, whereas a new HTTP
verb is a much harder thing to get deployed, particularly in the
post-SOAP universe. REST-heads are quite happy with their existing
versbs, and Web service folk seem happy indirecting everything through a
layer of SOAPy XML. That leaves quite a small constiuency for HTTP
extensions. Even WebDAV is feeling that squeeze, I think...
